Musicians looking for a next step after grade 8 that doesn't involve sight-reading, scales and aural tests may be excited to hear about the new ARSM diploma coming soon from ABRSM.
Within the challenge of performing a 30-minute programme, candidates are assessed on their musical communication skills, interpretation and technical delivery. There are no written or spoken elements, and no sight-reading, aural tests or scales.
Who is it for?
- Anyone seeking a challenge beyond Grade 8.
- Musicians who wants to get back into playing or singing after a break
- Those looking to enhance their performance skills before entering higher education or applying to study at university
